James Argent Admits His Feelings For Gemma Collins: 11 Heart Melting Moments From The Towie Christmas Special
Does Arg want that candy?
The weather outside may be frightful but we can always rely on The Only Way Is Essex and Gemma Collins to warm our hearts, and funny bones, right up.
The greatest love story Essex has ever known
Brentwood has seen it’s fair share of engrossing romances: Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger, Sam Faiers and Joey Essex, Ricky Rayment and Marnie Simpson. Yes, we went there.
But none have tugged at our heartstrings so much as that of star-crossed on/off lovers James ‘Arg’ Argent and the GC.
Bobby Norris gets his Sherlock hat on
Not literally, although we would pay actual money (in chocolate coins) to see that. But Bobby believes there is more to the friendship between his pal Gems and Arg than she is letting on.
Gemma claims that things are “platonic”, despite Arg “touching her on the leg” and, tonguing. So much tonguing.
Does Arg want to be with Gemma?
“It’s really hard to tell what’s going on with me and Gemma,” said Arg.
“I love the girl but I can’t work out whether it’s a friendship love or a lover’s love.”
James Argent’s birthday party
The singer (is that still a thing? Feels like a while since we’ve heard him crooning) invites all his Essex pals to a big party to celebrate his 30th birthday and rewards them with a cockle-warming speech of thanks.
“I want to thank each and every single one of you for coming to my birthday party tonight, thank you so much.
“I'm the happiest I've ever been. I'm so lucky and I'm so grateful."
Aw, how sweet.
GC the guest of honour
But the sweetness doesn’t stop there, Arg said there was "one person in particular" that he had to give a special shout out to.
"Her name is GC. Gemma you’re so lovely to me, you’re always there whenever I need you,” he gushed.
“You treat me with such respect, you’re kind to me and you make me laugh so much. There isn’t an instance where I’m not around you where I don’t find you bloody hilarious.”
Are Arg and GC back on?
"I know you always think 'Arg cares too much about what people think and he's hiding it' but I just want to let you know now that I don't care what anyone thinks," Arg went on.
“I love your candy.
“If you would spend Christmas with me, that would make me the happiest man in the world.”
There is the slight matter of Gemma signing up for Celebs Go Dating, but did that stop Stephen Bear when he was dating Charlotte Crosby? No, it did not.
Chloe Sims and Pete Wicks’ relationship
After spurning Chloe’s friendship for the sake of his relationship with Megan McKenna, that has now crumbled to dust, Pete has finally realised that Chloe is the second best woman in Essex and they are pals again - hoo-flipping-ray.
“I’m going to Christmas the sh*t out of him,” Chloe announces when it becomes clear that Pete doesn’t like the season.
“He’s going to have crackers coming out of his arse.”
It’s a Blue Christmas for Courtney Green
Oh, Courtney love. Are we here again? She tells her pals she’s planning to move Myles Barnett into her family home and, after the trouble they’ve had this year, we think it sounds like a terrible idea. And Myles looks kinda sick when Courtney presents him with a key to the family pile.
Courtney can’t handle the truth
Chloe Green, Amber Dowding and Chris Clark, tell Court that Myles is not jumping up and down with enthusiasm about the idea about moving into Green Towers as he, to quote the man himself, wants to have his own place and “have a couple of years with the boys”.
Miles gets agg with Chloe - again
When Myles hears what’s been said, he confronts Chloe, Chris and Amber and accuses them of stirring things up with his girlfriend. Surprise!
He then tells Court that what he said was taken out of context. And it’s not like the whole conversation was recorded or anything. Oh.
But to end with some Christmas cheer
Let’s hear it for Bobby Norris, who said:
“I would love to wake up on Christmas morning with Mike Hassini in my sack.”
